Office buildings are places of business that need a lot of care and attention. Even though a well-built commercial building will stay in good shape for many years, it needs to be maintained annually to keep your tenants safe, healthy, and happy. In exchange, you have an excellent reputation and a steady income. Here are some tips for taking care of office space.
The Exterior Of Your Office Building
The outside is made up of the roof, the windows, the doors, the parking, the sidewalks, the lighting, and the landscaping. Like a house, the top and windows wear out over time and must be fixed or replaced. Roofs can fall apart, and windows can get water in them. Hardscapes like asphalt parking lots can crack and break down over time, so they need to be sealed or repaved. Lighting makes it easy to see and walk on your paths, and landscaping is the cherry on top. The outside of your office building is the first thing people see, so it needs to look good.
Your Front Entrance
Any parts of your building that anyone can use, like the lobby and hallways, should be clean and nice-looking for anyone who walks in. You should hire a professional cleaning service to clean these entrances (and the office suites.) Check if the floor, walls, and other things are in good shape. Local art could be hung on the walls to make the room more attractive.
Electronic Lifts And Stairs
Elevators and stairs also need to be checked and kept in good shape, especially regarding people’s health and safety. The people who clean your house should also take care of these places. Ensure there’s enough lighting and the stairs and elevators are in good shape.
Enhance Your Security Measures
For the safety of your tenants, you also need security systems to keep the building in good shape. No one can guarantee that a business building won’t be broken into. You can choose a licensed security company to check out your property and devise a good plan for keeping it safe.
The temperature, relative humidity, and ventilation inside your building are also crucial to the health of your tenants. Commercial HVAC systems and air ducts must be checked and cleaned regularly to prevent dust, mold, and health problems.
